Buying a Home During the Holiday Season

From year-end tax incentives to faster closing times, there are plenty of reasons why buying a home in December makes a lot of sense for people. In fact, a recent study from Bankrate showed that you can save a fair amount of money by purchasing a new house in December. The study notes that out of the top 10 best days of the year to buy a home, 7 are in December. In other words, they represent the “housing market’s version of Black Friday,” when you can often get some of the best deals of the year.

In the study, real estate broker Leonard Steinberg is interviewed, noting that “while everyone else is out celebrating and shopping — reducing buyer volume — those who shop (for a home) will be met by sellers willing to make a deal.” 

Take Advantage of Less Competition

As you may or may not know, the competition for homes in Laramie can get rather intense from time to time. This is especially true for homes that are listed in the most common price points. 

Fortunately, purchasing a home during the holiday season means that there’s less competition. In many instances, people start thinking about buying a home in the spring or summer. That means that you can give yourself a leg up on the competition by shopping when there are less competitors and more motivated sellers. In other words, it can end up being a slam dunk. 

One added benefit you may not have considered? It’s much easier to shop for new appliances, furniture, and decor during the holiday season when you can take advantage of many end-of-year sales and save big on giving your home everything it needs for you to settle in easily.
